Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh wax or green beans
  • 6 bacon strips
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Directions

  1. Place beans in a large saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon until partially cooked, about 3 minutes; drain on paper towels.
  3. Drain beans; place about 12 beans on each bacon strip. Position one end of beans so they are nearly even; cut about 1/4 in. from that end so stalks will stand when served. Wrap bacon strip around beans; secure with a toothpick.
  4. Lay stalks flat on an ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle with onion powder. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
